The people at Varaluz can still remember being fascinated with glass bottles of pop as kids.
Cans be darned, bottles were just so much, well, cooler than cans.
Unable to let go of such obsessions, the Fascination family was born.
Recycled amber or clear bottle glass discs are set into recycled steel circles of various sizes.
Founded by Ron Henderson in 2006, he merges an eclectic aesthetic with an aerospace engineering background, forming the DNA of the Varaluz collection.
Each fixture is precisely rendered by Ron, and then hand-forged and finished by master craftsmen in the Philippines, whose trades span the generations, merging sophisticated style with quality construction.
The natural and built worlds inspire the Varaluz collection: shells, banana leaves and sea creatures (Big, Banana Leaf, Urchin), along with reclaimed glass and metal (Fascination, Ribbon).
Formalist influences strike an unexpected balance with whimsy.
Art-deco intersects with a childhood game of tic-tac-toe (Silicon Valley).
Modernism collides with the Brady Bunch (Palm Springs).
